Friday November 6

We seem to have had some eating problems in Nice. The restaurants do one sitting at lunch and then close the kitchen. We always seemed to miss the one seating and so were stuck with fast food, Nice style of course. Dinner turned out to be a bit of a headache as well. The restaurants that we could afford we could never get a table, so it was back to bread and cheese. Bread ,cheese and wine are cheap in France so that was an easy solution. No complaints.

Yesterday was sunny and warm in Nice...what a difference a day makes. With the sun shining it really is one of the most beautiful places that I have seen. People, well two people, were actually swimming, it was that nice. We took a very long walk up to the Matisse Museum. I am glad that it was free, because the operative word was museum, not much art to be seen. Oh well, always good to explore a new area of the city.

Today we are back in Paris. Paris too has been sunny and lovely. It is nice to have our bearings, being back at the same hotel again, in the best location ever. Today we walked to the Louvre, down the Champs Elysee to the Arc de Triumph, across town to the Eiffel Tower, and back to our hotel. We will go out for dinner at a restaurant that we visited the last time we passed through ,that has great food priced reasonably...I just hope that we can get a table on a Friday night.

I am sure that it will be another busy day of walking tomorrow. Until then.
